RHSA-2003-285: sane

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the sane packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated SANE packages that resolve a number of vulnerabilities with the
saned daemon are now available.

SANE is a package for using document scanners.

Sane includes a daemon program (called saned) that enables a single machine
connected to a scanner to be used remotely. This program contains several
vulnerabilities.

NOTE: Although the SANE packages include this program, it is not used by
default under Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

The IP address of the remote host is only checked after the first
communication occurs, causing saned.conf restrictions to be ineffective for
the first communication. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2003-0773 to this issue.

A connection that is dropped early causes one of several problems. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the names CVE-2003-0774, CVE-2003-0775, and CVE-2003-0777 to these issues.

Lack of error checking can cause various other unfavorable consequences.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the names CVE-2003-0776 and CVE-2003-0778 to these issues.

Users of SANE (particularly those that use saned for remote scanner access)
should upgrade to these errata packages, which contain a backported
security patch to resolve these issues.
